Program design

This course is flexible and versatile in adapting to the needs of participants.  The employer is responsible for decisions as to who is to be trained and what represents the adequate TDG training employees require.  The TDG training should be specific to the dangerous goods the employee handles and the duties they perform.  Scenarios are utilized to be consistent with the work environments of participants.  The delivery is lively and fun, in a non-threatening environment and participants are evaluated and assisted throughout to minimize the anxiety associated with practical examination.  Humour is used generously to maintain a relaxed atmosphere, and participants are encouraged to share their experiences.  Each segment is delivered in a step-by-step logical fashion; theory, demonstration, and practice.  The application of adult learning principles results in a highly interactive atmosphere.
